Undergroove Records return with first signing in two years - SERVERS

Wednesday 11th December, 2013


Legendary cult label Undergroove has announced its first signing in two years by inking a deal with South Yorkshire’s dirtiest rock ‘n’ rollers SERVERS.

To celebrate, Servers will release their debut single ‘Universes & Supernovas (The Ride) via iTunes on December 16.

To accompany, the band has also shot a video - directed by Jagermeister Music’s official photographer Mark Latham which premieres today at FRONT Magazine. Click here to view.

The single will feature the half-evil single edit of ‘Universes…’ along with the full-version and an exclusive track ‘King Things – Dead Girl’ (demo version).

Following on, the band’s debut album ‘Leave With Us’ will be released on February 24 2014 on CD and digital format. It’s an album that features an insight into Servers’ fascination into the world of cults; cult leaders and the control and influence that one person can have on another in the name of a higher power or intelligence.

Says frontman Lee Storrar: “‘Universes…’ is a song about Yvonne & Steve McCudy-Hill who left their new born twins and three other kids to go and join the Heavens Gate cult. They dumped their kids on his mother... once in the cult they were kept apart which eventually got too much for the guy who then left and spent the rest of the time trying to get her to see sense and leave. She maintained that she loved them all but continued being a member and killed herself along with the other 38 members to board the spaceship that was hidden behind the Hale Bop Comet in order to achieve the next level of existence.”

‘Leave With Us’ was recorded with Matt Ellis (Black Spiders) at Axis Studios and continues Storrar’s long-standing recording relationship with the frontman.

Servers were formed by former GU Medicine frontman Lee Storrar. As GU Medicine, Lee released three critically acclaimed albums, had features in Kerrang!, Classic Rock and Rock Sound (amongst others); toured the UK The Wildhearts, Skid Row, My Ruin, Viking Skull, appeared at Sonisphere and Hard Rock Hell festivals and recorded a BBC Radio One Rock Show session at Maida Vale.

Established in 1999, as well as releasing the GU Medicine catalogue, Undergroove has released music for esteemed artists such as Exit_International, Black Spiders, The Ghost Of A Thousand, Minus The Bear, Aereogramme, *shels, Sorry & The Sinatras, Charger, Twin Zero, My Ruin, Lazarus Blackstar, Co-Exist and many more.

NEOSIS release new single and video

Wednesday 4th December, 2013


Technical industrial metal pioneers Neosis release their new single and video today, December 4. ‘Unwilling Fate’ is the final single to be taken from the band’s self-titled debut, released in April last year.



‘Unwilling Fate’ is unmistakable Neosis, combining bombastic technicality and a futuristic industrial outlook with a no-holds-barred attitude and a distinctive ear for the melodic. Tinged with moments of Meshuggah and Mnemic (with whom the band toured last year), this single is a sure-fire hit for fans of polyrhythmic brutality.

The last eighteen months have been a whirlwind period of activity for Neosis, playing alongside Arch Enemy, Deftones, Cult of Luna and Chimaira, as well as headlining the second stage at Euroblast Vol. 8. Now in the process of composing their second album, this Swiss band is surely one to keep an eye out for. Two eyes, if you can spare them...

AEOLIST release debut self-titled EP

Wednesday 4th December, 2013


Fresh from their sets at UK Tech-Metal Fest in London and Peterborough, exciting young progressive act AEOLIST released their debut self-titled EP on November 14th.

Formed two years ago, this young band from Norwich display astonishing maturity as they traverse the boundaries of progressive, technical, and jazz metal with ease. Blues- and jazz-tinged guitar solos collide with soaring highs, crushing riffs and facemelting blast beats. If you like your music to sit alongside the esteemed company of The Contortionist, Protest the Hero and Between the Buried and Me, then Aeolist will be right up your street.



Despite a long gestation period (which had definitely nothing to do with guitarist Tom losing all the sound files from his computer), Aeolist is an impressively complete EP, at once both thought-provoking and awe-inspiring.

MURDOCK join Destroy Everything

Wednesday 4th December, 2013


Irish hardcore metal noise act Murdock have announced their signing to London-based label Destroy Everything. To coincide with the signing, the band are releasing their brand new single and video ‘The Signal in the Noise’.



Well renowned for an outstanding live reputation and a 'no frills, no bullsh*t' approach, 'The Signal in the Noise' stays true to Murdock's motto 'If you're not bleeding or exhausted, what's the point'?

Destroy Everything's Alex Berry comments: "The main question I asked myself when signing this band was, "Will they be as crazy as that dude from The A-Team with the same name?" The answer? A resounding "Yes".

For fans of Converge, Norma Jean and Cancer Bats, 'The Signal in the Noise' is a frenetic five minutes of Celtic passion, complete with sharp technical riffs, noise and fleeting moments of rock n roll.

The band will be playing their final show of 2013 supporting the mighty Unearth with an exclusive Irish show on Sunday December 15 in Dublin.
